I downloaded the trial last night and noticed that if I select View\Active Tasks from the menu the Active Task window disappears as expected. However, reenabling View\Actice Tasks does not bring the window back - a restart of the program is required. This brings me to another, related point. These "View" options are not sticky. For example, if I deselect the status bar (View\Status Bar) and exit the application, the next time the program is run the status bar is back - the same is true for the other view options, e.g. Common Tasks window, Tool button size etc. These issues are relatively trivial when compared with the importance of a having solid data backup and restore facility, but I mention them here only by way of feedback to Acronis.
